A Land Unknown - an installation by Cyrill Lim and Marcel Zaes

Monday, January 27, 2020

12:00pm - 6:00pm

Brown Arts Initiative

Granoff Center for the Creative Arts

Fishman Studio

Lim & Zaes’ new installation piece collects various visual, tactile, sonic and human-made phenomena, all of which unfold at, and on, the material surfaces that are on display. The pieces are sculptural, and yet they stand in as placeholders for that which is absent. They open themselves to the visitor’s actual and imaginative perception. In a sense, these pieces may be, to the artists as much as to the visitors, a land unknown. Admission to the exhibition, taking place in Granoff Center for the Creative Arts, Fishman Studio (aka Studio One), is free and open to the public.
